Let aside for a moment the situation that crosses Samsung with its Galaxy Note 7 and see what most South Koreans are doing. As we know, their presence extends to several markets where the chip division is one of the most successful and profitable for the company, and this is precisely who is announcing its new development aimed at wearables and IoT devices.
The new Exynos 7 Dual 7270 is an interesting bet by Samsung, as it is based on his famous process 14 nanometer FinFET that has been used in their SoC for smartphones, but now goes a step further in addressing the market for wearables with full connectivity solution that integrates its first 4G LTE modem itself.
7 Dual Exynos 7270 with LTE
This new SoC integrates two Cortex-A53 cores, which the company says will offer energy efficiency up to 20% compared to its predecessor which was manufactured under processes of 28 nanometers, which will have the same power but with greater autonomy, all in a size of only 100 square millimeters and a height reduction of 30%.
The Exynos 7 Dual 7270 integrates “seamless connectivity” to have WiFi, Bluetooth, support for FM Radio, and GPS (GNSS), but the most important part is the addition of a modem 4G LTE Category 4, which will allow devices they can connect to mobile data network without needing a smartphone.

This will benefit manufacturers looking to develop wearables like smartwatches and personal quantifiers, more independent and enough to run tasks geolocation and mobile connection in a single component power, which will benefit the design of the devices and especially capabilities the batteries.
With this new Exynos 7 Dual 7270 Samsung immerses himself into the race by having economic, small and with full connectivity processors, a race which is already present Qualcomm with its Snapdragon 2100 and 1100 , bringing the next generation of wearables seems very interesting, as for example Apple was one of the companies sought a SoC with LTE without penalizing energy consumption in its Apple Watch, which caused the Apple Watch Series 2 has arrived without the desired mobile connection.Tags: Bluetooth, chip, FM Radio, GPS, LTE, Samsung, wearables, WiFi
